Organisers of LEAF Open Farm Sunday 2020 announce this year’s event in September will go online

After much careful consideration, taking into account farmer feedback and using other similar events and shows as guidance, we have taken the decision to cancel all face to face on-farm LEAF Open Farm Sunday events this September. We are all looking forward to welcoming the public back on farm next year on Sunday 13th June 2021.

LEAF Open Farm Sun­day 2020 goes ONLINE

Organ­is­ers of LEAF Open Farm Sun­day 2020 announce this year’s event in Sep­tem­ber will go online.

When lock­down was enforced in March, we took the dif­fi­cult deci­sion to post­pone LEAF Open Farm Sun­day from 7th June to 20th September. 

We have con­sult­ed wide­ly with our host farm­ers, spon­sors and sup­port­ers and whilst there is the dri­ve and enthu­si­asm to share our farm­ing sto­ry with the pub­lic, there con­tin­ues to be many con­cerns regard­ing host­ing on-farm vis­its this year due to the con­tin­u­ing COVID-19 situation. 

After much care­ful con­sid­er­a­tion, tak­ing into account farmer feed­back and using oth­er sim­i­lar events and shows as guid­ance, we have tak­en the deci­sion to can­cel all face to face on-farm LEAF Open Farm Sun­day events this Sep­tem­ber. We are all look­ing for­ward to wel­com­ing the pub­lic back on farm next year on Sun­day 13th June 2021.

Fol­low­ing the huge suc­cess of LEAF Online Farm Sun­day this June, we are mak­ing plans to pro­mote more vir­tu­al farm tours dur­ing the week­end of 20th Sep­tem­ber 2020. This will be an excit­ing oppor­tu­ni­ty to show­case the tail end of har­vest, drilling and autumn calv­ing along­side many oth­er aspects of farm life which the pub­lic may nev­er get the chance to see. More details to fol­low soon.

We would like to thank our LOFS spon­sors for their under­stand­ing and con­tin­ued sup­port to show­case the best of British farm­ing to the pub­lic across the UK and fur­ther afield. Our 2020 LOFS spon­sors are: AHDB, Arla Foods, Asda, BASF, Co-op, Defra, Farm­ers Week­ly, Fron­tier Agri­cul­ture, John Deere, Kel­log­gs, LEAF Mar­que, NFU, Sains­burys, Tesco and Waitrose.
